After gaining international recognition with The Bolshoi (La Fábrica, 2017), the Russian photographer Sasha Gusov turns us into privileged spectators of the life of one of the most fascinating men in history: Michelangelo.
This volume—a collaboration between Sasha Gusov and the russian film director Andrei Konchalovsky—is a photographic diary that not only portrays the shooting of the movie The Sin, but also observes the faces from the past with extraordinary depth, bringing us closer to the Renaissance man’s psychology and the lights and shadows of his constant search for beauty. Gusov’s beautiful, black-and white photographs, which look like paintings of the Quattrocento, show the actors in meditative poses and in the moments of greatest concentration, in a stark and precise way.
Based in London, Sasha Gusov works for multiple newspapers and magazines, such as The Daily Telegraph and Vogue, as well as image and photography firms. He is the author of Shooting Images (2001) and co author, along with A. Navrozov, of Italian Carousel (2003). He has also worked for influential clients such as Christie’s and Sotheby’s.
